So getting that tunnel trans took some "massaging" of the 356 sheet metal, as well as some 'clearancing" to the trans, but I got it in!
By the time I was done with the rest of the trial fitting it was too dark for pics, so I'll jump right to the goods.
You may remember the engine in the back ground from my "new transmission" picture.

The first few pulls got between 198hp - 204hp @ 6000rpm before jetting and *really* tuning the carbs.
Jack asked me if I wanted drive-ability or max hp. I want drive-ability so he tuned it accordingly.
He figures 210hp + @ 6500rpm with a redline up near the 8000rpm mark
